tv   This Week With Christiane Amanpour  ABC  September 12, 2010 10:30am-11:30am EDT

10:30 am
and around the world. i'm christiane amanpour. at the top of the news this week -- as the global economy recovers, is the united states falling behind. >> it's understandable that people are saying what have row done? >> the president proposes new spending and allowing tax cuts for the wealthy to expire. is it good politics, economics? questions for austan goolsbee this morning. then, remembering 9/11. and nine years later, the growing hostility towards american muslims. >> we're treated and talked about today as if american muslims are not american. >> an exclusive interview with the imam that wants to build an islamic center near ground zero.
10:31 am
and three leading thinkers on faith discuss tolerance and islam-ophobia. and the "roundtable," with george will, arianna huffington, jon than karl. and "the sunday funnies." the economy is so bad that the florida preacher, terry jones, now wants to burn his 401(k). hello, the world economy once looked to the american consumer to pull it out of recession. not anymore. now the world is looking to china and emerging economies. at his news conference on friday, the president admitted that progress here was painfully slow. joining me this morning, the president's top economic
10:32 am
adviser, austan goolsbee. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> thank you very much. i want to ask you what's just happened. the how minority leader, john boehner said he would consider extending the middle class tax cuts. if the only option i have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, i'll vote for it, he said, on "face the nation" this morning. what is your reaction? >> i haven't seen the comments. i noticed the qualifier if my only choice is. if he -- if he's truly saying that we can, as the president called for, get a broad consensus to extend the middle class tax cuts, we should do it. we shouldn't hold that hostage for the argument about the tax cuts just for the very, very highest income people. if he's for that, i would happy.
10:33 am
in the past, we have seen some of these circumstances in which what appears to be the offer of doing the sensible thing in the light of day, there's a little bit of a feeling of, well if the president's for it, i'm against it, then it falls apart. >> he does obviously say he's going do everything he can to fight to make shaur that all the tax cuts are extended. if this does happen that he's going vote for an extension of the middle class tax cuts, how, and do you think that those democrats that oppose what the president wants to do will be brought on board? will they go for just the middle class tax cuts? >> i hope so. i'm not a political expert. i'm just a policy guy. i believe there's a broad consensus, a middle ground, if you will, that democrats and republicans and business people and workers can agree on to get
10:34 am
this -- the economy grows faster and getting people back to work. it's exactly what the president tried to do and is trying to emphasize in the policies he outlined this week. we ought to do that. we caught to come together. i have noticed -- in congress there is a bit of a different philosophy, i think. between what respective boehner and the president are putting forward. the president is saying, let's find the middle ground and find the things that can get the economy growing. incentives for small business, investment, so people want to build factories and employ people in this country and we give tax relief to the middle class. i would point out that representative boehner has a different view and calling for the repeal of the stimulus.
10:35 am
that would raise taxes. >> it looks like representative boehner, if we take him at what he just said. he'll vote for it if it's the only option he has. the president said he wants to extend the bush era middle class tax cuts but allow the ones for the wealthy to expire. one of your former colleagues, peter orszag had an op ed. he says higher taxes now would crimp the economy. to extend them all for the next two years. is that agoer? >> he made the political argument that if we extended them all for two years, the republicans could be convinced to get rid of the high income tax cuts after the two years. >> would you do that?
10:36 am
>> i don't think that politically he's correct. i think representative boehner has made clear he wants to go back to the tax and budget policy of the bush administration. >> but he made the argument that it would crimp consumer demand? >> the president doesn't need to take lessons in tax cuts from anyone. we've cut taxes across the board. for small business eight different times. the president has a small business bill sitting in congress that is being held up by republicans in the senate. >> what does the president mean when he said, certainly, there's going to be room for discussion on extending the tax cuts for the wealthy. will they agree to extend them? has he opened an avenue view of negotiation on the tax cuts for the wealthy?
10:37 am
>> no, i do not think so. the president's been, all along, through the campaign anded a mth miniadministration, quite clear on what i believe the economics is quite clear that -- borrowing $700 billion to extend tax cuts that average more than $100,000 a year to millionaires and billionaires is the lest effective bang for the buck we can have. when he said we'll be open to discussion, it was in a sentence where he said, we should all be able to agree that what would give some certainty to the economy now would be extending the middle class tax cuts now. let talk about the other things after we do that. >> everything is about unemployment. where do you think unemployment will be in the short term? below 7%? >> there is an official
10:38 am
unemployment forecast that will be issued. i'm not going to def vit. it's going to stay high. this recession is the deepest in our lifetimes. the deepest since 1929. you take that people thrown out of work in the 1982, the 1991, thethe 2001 ree session. this is bigger than all of those combined. more than 8 million people lost their jobs. it's going take a significant push on our part and time before that comes down. i don't anticipate it come down rapidly. >> the president announced some $200 billion in tax breaks. the intrastructure building. how many jobs will that create? >> it depends on how row do it. it could have a significant impact on trying to get investment by small businesses in -- buying equipment, research
10:39 am
and development and job creation in this country. that's the key. >> do you have a target number? >> i don't want to speculate. the point is not spending. it's government giving tax cuts to businesses to invest in this country. that's what they are. we cannot have a sustained recovery without the private sector standing up. the president knows that and has said it many times. >> just briefly, as we close. a new report is saying that the number of american people living in poefrty is about to rise. from something like 13.2% to 15%. back to the 1960 levels, which led to the national war on poverty. what can you do, in this climate, to affect that? >> i think the number one thing to do to address poverty, sals the way you address unemployment and the squeeze on the middle
10:40 am
class. get the economy growing. get people back to work. the policies that the president's putting forward are different than what is coming from the other side. let's try to find the broad middle ground if which we have targeted incentives for people to do their investment in this country, not somewhere else. and part of that is infrastructure, part is research and development. part of it is old-fashioned moxie. >> austan goolsbee, thank you for joining me. >> thank you for having me. as much as the president wanted to talk about the economy, he found himself having to speak to the country about reledge use tolerance. yesterday, at pentagon ceremonies, the president reminded americans they are not at war with islam. the plans to build an islamic center near ground zero have
10:41 am
whipped things up. a pastor with a handful of followers can cause an international incident. nearly 50% of americans say they have an unfavorable view of islam now. not since 9/11 has the country seen such anti-muslim fervor. president obama is now calling for religious tolerance, just as president bush did in 2001. >> the face of terror is not the true faith of islam. that's not what islam is all about. islam is peace. >> america has a significant muslim problem. what we've seen now shows what is the tip of the iceberg. a reality that most people didn't notice. unleashed out of manhattan. becomes a series of acts, hate, protest. >> i think it's been under attack.
10:42 am
>> there's an increased level of fear. we used to be a normal citizen, a normal part of american society. you you get a lot more suspicion. >> no mosque here! >> reporter: americmuslim ameri are feeling vulnerable. and the latest? the threat to burn korans. i went to the proposed islamic center. i found visitors from out of town. >> time to draw together. not do things that would divide us. >> that is not america. that is not what americans are about. >> reporter: and journalists from around the world. >> this whole thing is like a huge international issue. >> we don't have to agree with islam. we have to agree on the constitution. >> i lost my parents.
10:43 am
>> reporter: these two events have caused a global backlash. from washington, to the vatican, to afghanistan. >> we have two dangers right now. one is that the civil liberties of muslim americans will be even more eroded. two, and more broadly. we'll wake up one day and realize that the america we like to celebrate, the america we point to people around the world and look down on them and say we're a democracy, we believe in human rights. that, in fact, all of that, with the exception of this group. and that's a very dangerous slippery slope to go down. >> and in new york city yesterday, 9/11 sarms were marked by protests for and against plans to build the islamic center nearby. the imam says he has no intention of moving it right now
10:44 am
or of meeting with the controversial pastor who wants to burn korans. i sat down with imam feisal abdul rauf. thank you. >> thank you for having me. we'll make the decisions best for everybody. >> how will you decide hat? >> it's been difficult and challenging. the discourse has been, to a certain extent, hijacked by the radica radicals. the radicals on both sides. they feed off each other. the attention they've been able to get by the media has aggravated the problem. >> 71% of morkers say it should be moved. what is your main reason for not wanting to move it? >> my major concern with moving it is that the headline in the
10:45 am
muslim world will be, islam is under attack in america. this will strengthen the radicals in the muslim orlando. help the recruitment. it will put our people, our soldiers, troops, embassies, citizens under attack in the muslim world. and we've expanded and given and fueled terrorism. do you think that is a legitimate grievance not to move snit. >> it's an extremely important consideration. >> people are saying that because you intimated it would cause anger in muslim countries, it could threaten the united states. people are saying you made a threat. was that your intention? >> i have never made a threat. i never made a threat. never expressed a threat. i would never threaten violence ever. i'm man of peace, dedicated to peace. we have two audiences. the american and the muslim.
10:46 am
this issue has riveted the attention of the whole muslim world. whatever we do, whatever we say is being watched. if we make the wrong move, it will strengthen the voice of the extremists. >> what about the sensitivities of the people that raised the objections to the center being so close to ground zero. >> do you think you should have done something different from the beginning? enough politicking, grass roots, whatever you would like to call it? >> we had reached out. this was front page news "the new york times" last december. no one objected.
10:47 am
what has happened, since may, five, six months later, for political reasons, certain politicians decided that this project would be very useful for the political ambition. >> sarah palin made a famous tweet saying please reconsider, the feelings are too raw. what did you think about that? >> i found it disingenuous to a certain extent. the fact of the matter is a rks this has been used for political purposes. and there is growing islamphobia around the country. we're americans, too. we're treated and talked about today as if american and muslims are not americans. we are americans. we are doctors, we are investment bankers, taxi drivers, store coopers, lawyers. we're part of the fabric of
10:48 am
america. and the way that america today treats its muslims is being watched by over ah 1 billion muslims worldwide. the battleground today is not between islam and the west. the battleground has been moderates of all faith traditions in all the countries of the world, against the radicals of all faith traditions in all parts of the world. >> there's a pastor, pastor jones in florida. what would have happened if the pastor had gone ahead and burned the korans? >> it would have created a disaster in the muslim world. it would have strengthened the radicals. it would have enhanced the possibility of terrorist acts against america and american interests. >> and solution might be that the pastor would not burn the koran if you would move the islamic center way away from where you plan it now.
10:49 am
does that sound like a reasonable compromise? >> you can't equate the two? how can you equate burning of any person's scripture with an attempt to build interfaith dialogue? this is a house with multifaith stake holders. multifaith partners intended to work together toward building peace. >> did you ever imagine that recommending or suggesting or buying a place so close to ground zero would cause this kind of controversy? >> never. >> and if you thought it would have provoked this, what would you have done? >> i would never have done it. i'm man of peace. the whole -- the whole objective of peace work is not to do something that will provoke controversy. >> in the latest poll that abc's conducted, only 37% of those asked expressed a positive feeling about islam. do you think that muslims,
10:50 am
people such as yourself, others here, can actually have a place to practice their religion freely to live freely as americans given that figure. it's the lowest figure since 2001? >> in spite of the polls, american muslims are happy and thrive in this country. one of the misper sepgs that exists that needs to be fixed is the perception that muslims in america are living in very, very bad circumstances. cannot practice religion freely. it's not the truth at all. we're practicing. we fast, pray, do our prayers. we're able to do that. our laws and political systems protect us. the muslim word needs to recognize that. >> do you think muslims feel more afraid today here in america than they did right after 9/11? >> the recent controversy has
10:51 am
heightened the concern among muslims. we feel there's a spike of islam-onphobia that is reaching, possibly exceeding what happened after 9/11. >> to hear more, go to our website at i'm joined by more guests. richard sizic, founder of the new evangelical partnership for the common good. welcome to all of you. can i start by asking all of you, how and what do you think of the imam's rationale for not moving. he puts to it an issue of national security. others in the christian movement say that religious zealots can't
10:52 am
be dictating decisions that americans take about religious freedom. what do you think of that? >> not much. >> why? >> because religions today are transnational. we live in a globalized world. it moves people. kit help move people in a positive direction. the action we take willdy tate what happens around the world. we should acknowledge that billions of people don't always understand us and act accordingly. rather than suggesting that to take this action -- in other words, to live it there is to bow down. that's what they say. that's totally unwarranted. >> what do you think?
10:53 am
>> i do think that imam feisal's reasoning is wrong headed. he says relocating will play into the hands of radicals. why are you acting us to play on the terms of the radicals? they'll use any excuse and twist it into a rationale for intimidating entire populations. we don't need to give them the mosque debate. they'll take anything. let's do the right thing regardless of them. >> what is the right thing? >> i would say build the mosque but use it as the opportunity to make it the most tolerant, transparent islam that the world has seen. >> you've done a lot on interfaith dialogue to try to build bridges since the disaster
10:54 am
of 9/11. what does this fervor say to you? because let me read you, actually, some of the poll numbers. which are interesting here. main stream islam encourages violence against nonmuslims. that was a question by abc news. 31% said yes. the next question, do you have a good basic understanding of islam? 55% said no. what has all your work done over the last nine years? >> i have to tell you the story of this last week is the story of the bridge builders in america coming out. on friday, after prayers and a set of interviews, there was a sixth grade girl at the interfaith youth corps. she said, i heard about the plans koran burning in florida,
10:55 am
it hurt me in my heart pip think religions should be nice to each other. i'm donating my allowance to your organization. >> that's wonderful. but you say you are more afraid now than you were at 9/11. >> that's true. my mother called yesterday. she said, i've been in the country for 35 years. i have never been afraid to say i call god allah or that i'm fasting. i'm scared now. i'm scared that your kids' names might be too islam. i tell her, mom, this is a blip in the broader arc of inclusiveness that is america. the history books will read that the forces of inclusiveness be defeat the forces of intolerance. >> only if we acknowledge that plenty of people not muslim in the country have legitimate fears of their own.
10:56 am
they are worried and anxious about what islam means for this country. over the last nine years, moderate muslims have failed to make the case for why there is nothing to fear about islam. when major nidal hassan opens fire and says god is great, and the first thing you hear out of the mouth of a moderate is, please don't misunderstand. >> let me ask you this. why sit, then, that the difference between 1 billion muslims, mostly peace loving, and al qaeda?
10:57 am
>> imam feisal abdul rauf has gone around the united states and the world, supported by this president and president bush teaching the message of peacemaking. when he asked others to support him in his effort to turn the mosque, the civic center into an instrument of peace make ig, the new evangelicals said, absolutely. we'll join you. the real victims of this conflict here in the united states, over this matter, and the broader issue of anti-muslim prejudice and bigotry can be christians overseas. we evangelicals have to be sensitive to the plight they face in their countries. when we say, we're not going to give the imam what he wants because that would be to bow to
10:58 am
islam. we're sighing to evangelicals around the world, we don't care about you and your plight. >> i want to put it into perspective. you called it a blip. hate crimes in 2008 were about 1519. and anti-islamic crimes represent 7%. with anti-jewish crimes representing 70%. how do muslims, now, feel that this is still their home? even though a majority say they feel american, they're successful. assimilated. >> i think a lot of us still feel that way. most of the young muslims i speak to, as a professor, i get to speak to a lot of young muslims. they adore the freedoms of this country. they conot consider this any
10:59 am
kind of a preholocaust moment. i say to them, have moderates in your community told you that the highest number of victims that al qaeda has are, in fact, muslims. al qaeda kills more muslims than any other group. they have not heard that. it's not just that we, broader society, need to make a distinction between al qaeda and all muslims. i think in muslim communities as well. they need to teach the young people to have solidarity is not criticizing u.s. foreign policy. it means criticizing the very muslims killing people in the name of your religion. >> eboo, you serve on a committee. the issue is leader ship.
11:00 am
it's not been lost that this has been whipped up by certain political interests. how does one address that and change it? >> i think president obama has been spot on about this. we have to get the "us" and the "them" right. the us believe in the plur lichl. a country where george washington said bigotry would not happen. america is a great arc of inclusiveness. i want my children to be able to contribute to the country like the children of my friends, the jewish friends, catholic friends, christian friends. >> thank you all for joining us today. and stay with us. next, we turn to politics on the
11:01 am
"roundtable," with george will, arianna huffington, kate joernicke, and jon karl. breathe in, breathe out. as volatile as markets have been lately, having the security of a strong financial partner certainly lets you breathe easier. for more than 140 years, pacific life has helped millions of americans build a secure financial future wouldn't it be nice to take a deep breath and relax? ask a financial professional about pacific life. the power to help you succeed.
11:02 am
no oil has flowed into the gulf for weeks, but it's just the beginning of our work. i'm iris cross. bp has taken full responsibility for the clean up in the gulf
11:03 am
and that includes keeping you informed. my job is to listen to the shrimpers and fishermen, hotel and restaurant workers and find ways to help. that means working with communities. we have 19 centers in 4 states. we've made over 120,000 claims payments, more than $375 million. we've committed $20 billion to an independent claims fund to cover lost income until people impacted can get back to work. we'll keep looking for oil, cleaning it up if we find it and restoring the gulf coast. i was born in new orleans. my family still lives here. bp is gonna be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal... until we make this right.
11:04 am
coming up next, the
11:05 am
"roundtable," and "the sunday funnies."
11:06 am
so, so, let me be clear to mr.
11:07 am
boehner. boehner. the republicans in congress, i bet this just seems like common sense. but not the mr. boehner. >> president obama finds a foil in his speech in cleveland, the man who would be speaker in the republicans take the house in november. we'll talk about that and more with george will, arianna huffington, kate zernicky, and abc senior congressional correspondent, jon than karl. thank you all. welcome. let's take john boehner. he's just made some news by saying that he seems to -- if he would have to, make a compromise on the middle class tax cuts and vote for just extending them. is that a go? is there a qualifier? >> i think he means what he
11:08 am
says, some tax cuts are better than none. he wants to fight for all of them. seven times he mentioned john boehn boehner. the president of the united states has met the dill van. he has a 78-seat majority in the house of respectives and john boehner is his problem? that's sad. >> most people react to that by saying who is john boehner? >> what if he becomes the majority leader? >> can they convince the people that john boehner is an evil force before november? >> what do you think this debate about the tax cuts means for the midterm? >> the one number that matters is 9.6. that's the unemployment none. everything else is really
11:09 am
irrelevant compared to the unemployment number. in 1994, when republicans took over the house, the unemployment was 5.6%. this is a wave election. the cards have been dealt. i believe in miracles. i don't see a fairy being able to come and change things by november. >> you heard austan goolsbee say it was likely to be high for awhile. is this empowering the tea party movement? what will happen in this week's primaries? >> i don't think the unemployment number is motivating the tea party. i think the primaries will be interesting. i think the primary in new hampshire will swing with the establishment. the delaware senate race, a lot of people are looking for it to be a tea party election.
11:10 am
i think the o'donnell is ele elected, that will be a boom for the democrats. she's someone that the republicans went after. she ran against joe biden. now that she's running against mike castle, they've raised issues about her financial problems. if she wins, the republican party can't get behind them. >> you were there? >> i was. i spoke to christine o'donnell and mike castle. you had jim demint and sarah palin endorsing o'donnell. to a person in delaware, the republicans, aside from mint, they'll say if o'donnell win this is, boom, they can't win joe biden's senate seat. >> you have about ten congressional races where a third party may make a difference. in the end, there's an overwhelming anger in the country. you have two-thirds of all americans who believe their children are not going to do as well as they're doing.
11:11 am
it's a profound anger. politics says, fair game. if they don't vote for the party in charge right now, they vote for the party. they're going to make things worse. right now, they don't have another choice. >> leave aside the anger. look at the structural problems that the government has. americas prefer divided government. one party holds the exexactive branch. the other holds the other part. the youth and the my or not votes energized by the obama vote won't be there. >> i think arianna is right. the tea party is a state of mind more than a movement. people may not identify themselves as tea party members. they're looking for change. >> the wave elections are
11:12 am
normally understood where 20 seats in the house do one way or the other. this is a wave election following two consecutive wave elections. the republicans start this year from an unnatural bottom. >> it will go 20, 25, 35 seats. i think there are premature statements here that the house is won by republicans. if you go state by state in the races, it's tough to show how they'll get to the majority. they may do it. the national trends are horrific for democrats. this is not done yet. >> that's the point. the national trends will be bad for democrats between now and november. next week, the census numbers will show the poverty rate going to 15%. these are the numbers we had in the '60s. unprecedented foreclosures, car repossessions.
11:13 am
the fire shows where the infrastructure is. the fire in california. when you have pipes not repaired and people are dying. >> and what i find kind of extraordinary is what apparently seems to be according to economists and the experts, real ways of spurring j not just the economy but unemployment and making long-term infrastructure payments and efforts pu seems not to be politically tenable. this seems to be war, if you like, between what's good for the health of the economy and what's good for political health. >> the president proposed $50 billion infrastructure bank. that's over six years. it's trivial. >> and notice that austan goolsbee did not go there. when you asked him about how many jobs will be created.
11:14 am
>> they know how they underestimated the economic crisis. they said unemployment would be down 8%. right now, the american people are given a choice between inadequate choices from the democrats and laughable ones from the rbs. thank god in nevada they can vote none of the above. >> i will put up part of jon's intervi interview. >> do we have enemies of the country in the halls of congress? >> people that pass these kinds of policies, stimulus, bailouts, they're certainly not friends to the free market system. >> so what are they? >> they're not friends. >> she wouldn't go there. it's an extraordinary comment to make, enemies of the system.
11:15 am
>> and she's not backing off her earlier statement. she mentioned thosed that supported bailouts, that would include john boehner and george w. bush. >> you talk to people coming to the capitol this week end to rally, that's not an up usual view. >> that's the irony again. at the bottom of the anger is anger at the bailout. people have been given proof that the government does not work. the government spent almost $800 billion and look where we are. >> people in business, venture capital saying, why doesn't the government do more to force banks to lend, to do more to make it easier for people to show consumer activity? >> maybe if the government did
11:16 am
less, period, people would be more inclined to lend money. the banks are not hoarding the money because they're mad at somebody. they're hording money because they can't find lenders who think they can borrow it and make money. >> that's not true. the banks are getting almost 0% rates from the fed. they're profiting from it. this congress and this administration still has not passed an end to too big to fail. even though people are not able to give you all the details, they know that the system has not been fixed. that financial reform is full of loopholes. that the system is not fair to them as they're seeing their lives fall apart. >> and yet, people, when it comes down to -- even if bad situations, there have been
11:17 am
periods where leadership builds up confidence, optimism. what does this administration need to do to build the confidence of people nech a bad situation? >> it's hard to do it over the next eight weeks. >> beyond the next eight weeks. in general. this is not a problem that will go away after the election. >> what got us here is the complete pole rizization on capitol hill. no republican support at all helped pass things. it won't be easier if you getting anal, buck, joe miller coming in next time around. the idea that the government can actually accomplish something. there can be agreement among the parties about what is right. it's a notion that is almost completely gone away. >> the tax cuts. the president says we can't afford the tax cuts to the
11:18 am
wealthy. over ten years, it would add less to the deficit than obama added in one year. >> they're the least effective in terms of long term, the economic health. they say that for instance, a payroll tax holiday would have been the most effective. why do you thing that didn't happen? >> we never had the urgency about saving jobs that we did about saving wall street. everybody came together over the weekend and said, we cannot let this happen. they never did that about jobs. payroll tax holiday, r & d credit. it's too late for the midterms, not too late for the economy. >> on that note, you'll continue the discussion in the green roam, i hope.
